After many speculations and rumors over the past few weeks, it appears that 37-year old slugger Vladimir Guerrero has finally found a new home north of the border.
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, who first reported the deal on Twitter, the Toronto Blue Jays have signed the designated hitter to a minor league contract.
However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Blue Jays make some changes to their lineup to accommodate Guerrero should he look good in his first few games down on the farm.
The likely Hall of Famer still has some pop in his bat, and in 590 plate appearances with the Orioles last year, the nine-time All-Star posted a .290/.317/.416 line with 13 homers.
With 2,590 hits, 449 homers and a .318/.379/.553 line in 16 big league seasons. He Guerrero seems like a low-risk deal for Toronto who could us some extra power at the plate.
